Économie politique de la répression : le cas de la Tunisie

Abstract : At the confluence of two intellectual traditions (Weberian political economy and the Foucauldian analysis of the exercise of power and domination), this article suggests that the cogwheels of the economy also drive the power relations engendering the domination, and sometimes repression, of the people. Based on a case study of a specific country (Tunisia) and situational context (industrial modernization), the article shows that the mechanisms controlling the populace as a whole are anchored in the most commonplace power relations and that these practices may serve as much to coerce, even repress, the citizenry as to pave the way for an economic miracle?.
